OPTIBIOCAT involves a highly skilled and multidisciplinary partnership of 16 partners from eight EU countries. The biocatalysts will be based on feruloyl acid esterases (“FAE”) and glucuronyl esterases (“GE”) which are expected to be used in the production of phenolic fatty- and sugar- esters with antioxidant activity for the cosmetic industry.
